First Gameplay Footage Of PS4 Witcher 3 Revealed

The very first gameplay footage for the Playstation 4 version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been released. Playstation Access put up a 5 minute video on their official YouTube channel, showing Geralt exploring the game’s vibrant countryside and galloping around on horseback, as well as showing off some combat. There’s also a second video on the official Polish Playstation YouTube channel, showing off just under six minutes more of the game’s vibrant countryside.

You might be wondering why it’s taken so long for this footage to come out, considering we’ve seen plenty of Witcher 3 footage taken from its PC version. CD Projekt Red actually has a deal in place with Microsoft, which meant the release of footage of the game’s PS4 version had to be delayed. Deals like this are common for the big triple-A titles, as they enable the developers to shed a portion of the costs of making the game by entering a marketing deal with a particular console maker. Sony recently made similar deals with Warner Bros. for Batman Arkham Asylum and with EA for Star Wars Battlefront.

As per the game’s specs, the PS4 videos both run in 1080p (The Witcher 3 will run in 1080p/60 FPS on PC, 1080p/30 FPS on PS4, and 900p/30 FPS on Xbox One). Based on the videos, the PS4 footage seems to stand up next to the PC footage we’ve seen so far, although it’s fairly safe to assume The Witcher 3 is going to look great no matter which platform it’s played on. It’s also been confirmed that there will be a minor day one patch for the game. CD Projekt Red’s level designer Miles Tost confirmed through Twitter the patch was not needed to make The Witcher 3 run properly, but rather is there because they “want it to be the best it can be when it reaches your hands.”

The Witcher 3; Wild Hunt releases on May 19. That’s just under a fortnight – time to start getting excited.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Bandai Namco and Nike designed Tekken 8 sneakers with tag-team designs

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.

There will soon be a new book in Future Press’s Books of Knowledge series, which is FromSoftware’s officially licensed line of hardcover strategy guides. This will help players who are having trouble with Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree expansion. The base game came with two books, and now you can get the unholy trinity for $45 (or the equivalent amount in your currency). It will ship on September 30th.

Like the first two games, The Lands Between and Shards of Shattering, Shadow of the Erdtree is both a complete guide to how to play and a beautiful artbook with full-page pictures of enemies, landscapes, and weapons. This big book has 352 pages and is likely to sell out quickly, based on how quickly the ones that came before it did.

Do you know a lot about strategy guides? You could read the first two Books of Knowledge. If so, what did you think of them? Leave a comment below and let us know.
